  • The admission criteria for Automotive Service Technology 1 and Automotive Service Technology 2, offered at Braman Automotive Training Center (BATC) are handled by BATC and Lindsey Hopkins.
  • Any individual with special needs applying for admission will be referred to Vocational Rehabilitation or other appropriate agencies which will work closely with the school in determining when the individual is ready to be accepted for admission to an adult program.
  • Career/technical students who wish to enter programs of 450 clock hours of instruction or more must complete a basic skills examination within the first six (6) calendar weeks after admission into the program, even if they hold a high school diploma.
  • Exceptions from the basic skills testing requirements include students possessing an associate of applied science or arts, baccalaureate graduate-level degree; students who have passed or are exempt from the college-level communication and computation examination; and/or students who are exempt from the college entry-level examination.
  • Students with disabilities may request testing accommodations if they provide written documentation verifying their disability.
  • Prospective students may register directly for many courses that do not have pre-entrance requirements by completing registration and paying a small registration fee plus career/technical tuition if required.
  • For certain adult career/technical programs, primarily in the field of health sciences, prospective students must meet with a counselor prior to enrollment because of additional admissions requirements including proof of high school or GED transcripts, minimum scores on an entrance test and orientation sessions.
  • If counseling and/or testing indicate that students do not qualify for the original program choice, then an alternate program or remediation is recommended.
  • Students enrolling in adult education programs are required to take a basic skills test for placement prior to registration to determine the appropriate level of study.
